We hope everyone had an awesome weekend.

This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. This week we will be studying about the letter Ww. The vocabulary words for this letter are: walrus, whale, watermelon, wheel, water, window, wig, walk, wand, web, watch

Children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Tuesday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have William (Prek”A”) and Juwon (Prek”B”).
Thank you for your support!!
